I think that HS closed some years back, and as a completely anglo-sized white kid, I always said "dell vall yeah" but someone in the know (Spanish) said it once and I didn't know what they were talking about...I think Campolindo was further west from DV.

That is funny. As another white kid, I always said "del vie yay" which actually should be close to the proper Spanish pronunciation. Did you grow up in the East Bay, WT?

Ha! Yep, I did; think you came close to what I was trying to spell out there, but the person that spoke Spanish said the first "l" should be silent, and the pair should be pronounced as "i" + "yeah" (thus, "de vai yeah").

Crap, I am just no good at this letter combo prounciation shit.
